The song “Grandola, Vila Morena” first became a symbol of protest during the 1974 revolution that brought democracy to Portugal.
Now it’s being revived to protest against austerity.
Carlos Bahia was 10-years-old in 1974.
He came to the United States in 1977 and now lives in Danbury, CT.
He plays “Grandola, Vila Morena” on his radio program Radio Familia on WFAR in Danbury, Connecticut.
He says he’s getting numerous requests to play the song on his show.
